Hello all. New anime fan.

  • Hey all, I'm a new anime fan. Other than my recently discovered interest of anime and manga, I volunteer with dogs at a local animal shelter (I'm more of a cat person though, and yes she is my cat in my pic), like to go hiking, board games, and visiting parks for walks and/or bike rides.

    In approximately the past year-and-a-half I've watched Fullmetal Alchemist, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Attack on Titan so far. Before that…I've only seen anime my Miyazaki. I just never got around to watching other anime; wasn't deliberately avoiding it. I look forward to watching more series. Currently I'm slowly watching One Piece while reading the manga. I read the FMA manga before watching both anime, and read AOT after watching the anime...up to date with what's physically released in English...which is now volume 14.

    If I like both FMAs, Attack on Titan, and so far what I've seen of One Piece (18 episodes), what would you recommend?

  • Hi!

    Here are some suggestions I think you might enjoy. They are not brand new series but in my opinion pretty great: dragon ball series, Naruto, ranma 1/2, cowboy bebop, Trigun, outlaw star, and claymore to name a few. I hope you find many series you can enjoy. :)

  • Welcome to the forums, Whiskers. Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

    If you're a fan of FMA and AoT, you might want to give Soul Eater a try. Also, as a brand new budding anime fan, you should definitely start with the classics: Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, that sort of thing. Also be sure to give Space Dandy a try.

    Cute cat, by the way. :)

  • welcome to the forums. Enjoy posting with us.

  • Hi whiskers85! I'm a cat person too :) Some of my favorite anime are:

    Death Parade
    Laughing Under the Clouds
    Black Butler
    Legend of the Legendary Heroes

    I have other favorites, too, but these are probably most likely to suit you by what you listed above :)
    And your cat is cute :P

  • Welcome to the forums; hope that you post a lot around here.

    My recommendations for you are Heroic Age, Buso Renkin and D.Gray-man.

    If you are interested, don't forget to check out the link in my sig about requesting the FUNimation Channel.

  • Hi, whiskers85! Welcome to the forums! :)

    Some of my more action packed favorites are Samurai Champloo, Black Lagoon, and if you don't mind getting sucked into the feels and contemplative portion of anime, Death Parade.

    I agree with SpacemanHardy on Cowboy Bebop - it's definitely a great series to watch!

  • Thanks all for the replies and recommendations.

    I've noticed that there is a Trigun AND Trigun Maximum manga. I don't want to accidentally bump into spoilers so I haven't read about them online…what is the difference? (If possible to tell/explain without spoilers?). Is the anime an adaptation of Trigun only and not Trigun Maximum?

    I may or may not read the manga before. I still enjoyed reading the Attack on Titan manga after watching the first season.

  • Welcome to the forums

  • Welcome. I volunteered at an animal shelter too for a while til circumstances stopped me. I'm amazed no one has recommended you Death Note. I'd also recommend YuYuHakusho as well.
